James MacDonald (D. Min. Phoenix Seminary) is married to his high school sweetheart, Kathy, and both are from Ontario, Canada. He is the father of three grown children and grandfather to five amazing grandsons. James has committed his life and ministry to the unapologetic proclamation of God’s Word. In 1988, with eighteen people, James and Kathy planted Harvest Bible Chapel, which now ministers to more than 12,000 people at seven campus locations across Chicagoland each weekend.

In addition to his preaching ministry, James began Walk in the Word, a Bible-teaching ministry, on one radio station in 1997. Today the radio broadcast reaches more than three million people daily, and the Walk in the Word television program, starting in 2014, has a daily audience that extends around the world.
